commissioner for that feedback. >> thank you very much. vice chair avalos. >> thank you. just a couple questions related to the outreach efforts. we talk about opt out but not necessarily opt in that we had in the side conversation. i think it's a great opportunity. i think using us for the opt in process and i think both in opt in and opt out social media is going to be really helpful and i know we have used social media in relation to cleanpower sf but it hasn't been robust and i think there are ways of making it very useful and i think those are strategies that we can employ. >> thank you. we would be very open to spending a little time with our communication folks and yourselves and/or the staff to mind the good ideas you have to reach out to your communities. i refer to as reenrollment and the opt in concept and people can raise their hand "i'm interested" and let us know so that we include them in the first phrase of the roll out. >>i think the joint meeting would be great and especially on the subject of opting in and have discussion on that as well. >> yes. great. thank

to the city. i want to also thank supervisor john avalos and he being a very strong advocate and working together on local hire we have been able to set course and ordinance for city funded projects that i think have been leading the nation in getting local people hired. at the same time i also want to acknowledge supervisor jane kim whose district this arena is being planned for and hopefully constructed on. and take the quality time it takes for all the environmental aspects of this project to be put forth and i -- thank you supervisor. as you know i emphasized job creation in the city being so incredibly important for both the present and the future, and as our economy continues to sign signs of improvement i'm not going to forget where the jobs go and for the people in terms of hope for the city and of course working with laborers, with our construction contractors, with the labor council. tim is here together as well and mike and working with everybody we have unprecedented announcement today and 100% locally financed project close to $500 million of private investment signifyin

that you're suggesting commissioner avalos, and see if there is a general agreement that that's the type of approach you would like to see, and then we can go back working with our consultant to develop a more targeted focused program given that feedback. thank you. >> thank you very much. commissioner olague. >> yes. i will confirm you probably be partnering with community based organizationos this. who are some of them, just curious? >> i rely on the external affairs folks for that, but we reached out to your offices and asked for input. we reached out to the mayor's office on neighborhood services. we have a list of community organizations that the puc worked with his historically. >> we will assist however we can obviously. >> jason has made presentations -- i want to say -- >> lafco and puc staff over two years now gone to over a hundred community groups for presentations and street fairs. it's not as recent. we are kicking back up into that and why you have the fliers and that is temporary and it wasn't representing what was current and we want something out there now while w

. commissioner avalos. >> i think perhaps just having real brief understanding of what the opposition would be and how we might be able to move forward, cognizant of what the opposition looks like and the strategy at the early stage expect to have in place. i don't mean opposition from people who do not sign up for the program or who would opt out, but from the pg&e of the world and other groups. >> and on that note one question that i had was whether or not at some point -- i don't know if it's something that should be done at a joint meeting, but maybe it's something that could be looked at here at lafco, but it's the idea of what were some of the challenges that marin for instance faced as they were implementing their program? i don't know if that is something that could be a part of a presentation to the joint two bodies. i don't know if you have thoughts about that. >> i do have one thought about that. don't forget since marin launched their program working together with marin, senator leno proposed legislation that includes a code of contact for caa's and the under lying utility so

's all. so i can't support it. i just don't support it. >> president chiu: supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you, president chiu. i can appreciate supervisor wiener's wanting to bring this forward as an issue. i think that he's received a lot of commentary about it over the years. and it seems like it's one issue that yu yud want to act on. i felt if this is an,( tfç issuu act on that it can backfire in lots of different ways. i am concerned about civil rights, i'm concerned about free speech, i'm concerned about just changing san francisco's style and how we are as a city. and it's something that's very troubling to me to see that. we're a city that actually had -- the publication of city life that naked lunch came out there was a ban about that. the city looks at free speech and expression, we're a beacon of light to other places around the country and sometimes there's weirdness about how we express ourselves but i think that is what is great about san francisco. i have something teed up that i was saving for before, for chris daly when he used the f word in
Nov 20, 2012 4:30pm PST
a motion as described seconded by supervisor olague. on the motion to amend, supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you, president chiu. i will be supporting this amendment. it makes much sense because i was very concerned that the original resolution overturned probably a year's work, i think longer than a year's work, of the, you know, hundreds of young people who worked, organized across san francisco, to get a policy of free muni for youth, at least for low income youth. i believe that at one point i remember the author of this resolution had discussed well why don't we make it for low income youth and we can support free muni for low income youth and now we have a resolution that pretty much says this should only be used for maintenance. so i'm really happy to support amendments that include, you know, prioritizing free muni for low income youth and maintenance. needed to actually help bring up the next generation of muni users. i know we talk about effectiveness all the time, and i think that there could be no other effective way of making sure that young people a

of the cac -- not all had concerns and sent that letter. >> that's correct. >> supervisor avalos. >> thank you. a quick question for probably jennifer matz or -- not sure. jennifer is probably best to answer it. >> jennifer. >> it is -- just a quick question. one of the discussions going forward about this project is looking at projections for events. warrior's games, concerts, family events that are going on. the proposal is 205 events each year. i'm wondering how realistic that is. we are not saying -- you know, there are any venues around the bay area or the country that actually have this many combination of sports and other events. has there been like -- you know, when vegas first started they signed a contract with allegedly frank sinatra and dean martin to actually bring. we have acts set up for the warriors? >> i can let rick speak directly to what the warriors have been doing in order to talk to event promoters. what i think is important to note is that 205 events runs the gam mot of the different size of shows. from as small as 4,000 to 5,000 to as large as full capacity for bask

know supervisor avalos we have been through that and in the publicly funded projects they wait until the end to say whether they can do anything, but with people's help we are doing this at the front end of the warriors and their vision about why they came to san francisco at our invitation and what they're going to do with us in lifting up the economy, making sure people get those jobs and making sure that we do our part as well, so this 25% goal you will hear it because you ask anybody in any other part of the country whether new york, chicago, so forth you will find this to be one of the unique situations where private investors voluntarily want to do this with organized labor, with our partners in the community based organizations to say we will hold ourselves accountable to the 25% goal and get the veterans in at the same time. this is an incredible milestone. i want to celebrate it but it's a beginning of a long process and a process that i believe it have the season here in 2017 and that's why the t shirts and the pins. this is where we're goi want to thank everybody that is

pause. we spent a lot of time as you brought up this morning supervisor avalos during the america's cup event authority lookinging at that pier in more detail and we determined there is an expensive proposition to remove, let alone try to rehabilitate it. it is sitting pier for us. as mentioned naturally deep berth. that is the whole reason the port exists on the western side is because we have naturally deep berths and can take advantage of that for the benefit so it is important to us. next door we are building the brandon street war f, requiring removal of peer 36, also row inforced and the building of a new park. the entire cost is 32 million. when i think about this, it will achieve something since 1987, repair a blighted part and put it into economic use. two, removes significant liability for the port. we are investing little money with respect to commitments on the america's cup to ensure the promenade and pier remain attached in event of seismic event. we will get another berth we desperately need at a cost we currently cannot afford. it is clear from our projections that will

forward with this in this direction. >> president chiu: supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you. this one is kind of troubling to me. i don't think i read the same memo in everyone else. i thought i lived in a efficiency unit. a family of four, 950 square feet and every inch of space is used. and we're just totally crammed in. i live in a district that is 6500 more people more dense than it was 10 years ago, and we have a number of houses that has efficiency units for the number of people who are crammed into them. and a great demand i see for housing is not something that i believe is really the kind of units that we're waiving the way here today. i do see that there are benefits for that and in certain parts of san francisco but i think over all this does not make a lot of sense to the san francisco that i know. i also know there are a lot of people who live in this city who are desperately trying to remain san franciscans representatives of this city, and are finding it difficult to be here because of the rising cost o of rent. i don't believe this is any kind of units being

for probably the last ten years. big booster for the cruise terminal. first i want to thank supervisor avalos, supervisor chu and supervisor kim for their thoughtful comments. i think they are important. i think you have expressed what the cac was trying to express. i want to echo supervisor avalos's comments about the comments at 105 feet. i expect this project will ask for a variance, a favor from the city. favors come with a price. i think the economic driver is going to be what they build on seawall lot 330, including what they build on the pier. i want to say one other thing, i was taken by comments of the executive director of the port, monique. she acknowledged difficulties the port has been having developing this site. she focused on the port. never once in her comments did she say anything about the 6,000 residential units directly across the street and the thousands upon thousands of residents that are stake holders that have moved into this neighborhood, taken and put their money at risk in this neighborhood. that is an important element. that is why there is cac. i just want to ma
